with this, the reckoning. put up or shut up, d day. president obama through down the gauntlet. he demanded congress pass a potent immigration reform bill, one that fiks the problem of decades, deals with the 12 million people here illegally, stops the illegal hiring and exploitation of worgers. so the challenge is out there right now right there in tonight's news packed and ready for tomorrow's newspapers. will it explode into action, light a firecracker under the republicans? will it detonate an avalanche of action driving teeth into the reform, ending the perennial talk that's led to nothing or to the old bogus reforms of the past. will the politicians get real or play more games of ethnic fear, economic exploitation and wedge politics? was today the end of all that? that could be possible? let's take a hard look with chuck todd. you heard all my questions. i'm holder than you, i have been through simpson mazoly. we were -- >> i love it's getting a come back. >> we've passed bills that said it's got teeth and it's got amnesty for people who have been here to while. is this going to work

finish tonight, president obama and outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton sat down for a rare joint interview with steve kroft of "60 minutes" this weekend. the two discussed their past rivalry, their current working relationship and american foreign policy. it was a public sign of solidarity between the two former rivals. yet that proved to be too much for the folks over at fox news. the "fox & friends" trio complained about the lack of real news, and attacked crawford for not digging deeper into clinton's health issues. >> the interview was awkward. they were giddy saying goodbye. and right at the top, steve kroft said they only gave us 30 minutes, which of course means there is not going to be any real news. and there wasn't. >> but if you give somebody 30 minutes, you could get real into it, especially steve kroft, who is usually awesome. but i think for some reason they didn't dig into anything at all. >> 30 minutes? come on. >> i would like to know, did she pass out and hit her head? was she pushed? how did she hit her head and get a concussion? >> and the whining didn't stop
about last night's "60 minutes" where they saw president obama and c secretary clinton sitting down. they talked about the challenges of putting aside their once heated rivalry. >> i spent time with both of you in the 2008 campaign. that was a very touch, bitter race, and i'm going to spare you reading some of the things that you said about each other during that campaign. but how long did it take you to get over that, and when did it happen? >> you know, it didn't take as long as i think people would perceive. as i said, once the primary was over, hillary worked very hard for me. bill worked very hard for me. so we were interacting on a fairly regular basis. i think it was harder for the staffs, which is understandable, you know, because they get invested in this stuff in ways that i think the candidates maybe don't. you know, hillary mentioned, you know, part of our bond is we've been through a lot of the same stuff. and part of being through the same stuff is getting whacked around in political campaigns, being criticized in the press. you know, we both built some pretty thick sk
